I’ve lost a bit of ground in the past couple of weeks. I slipped on my food resolutions, allowed my portion sizes to increase in size, and snacked more than I should. Consequently, I’ve gained back a few pounds. Luckily, I’ve kept up my level of exercise. I shudder to think how bad things could have gotten if I had not.
There’s no real reason for any of this, other than a lack of thought. That’s all. But I am now reminded of how easy it is to slip and lose ground. Even though it’s only a few pounds, my body has really told me how much it hates those pounds. I’ve felt bloated and ungainly.
So this week and next I’ll be recalibrating things. Writing down what I eat. Tracking how much water I drink. Thinking carefully about every bite of food that goes into my mouth BEFORE it goes into my mouth.
Hopefully, when I step on the scales again in a week, I’ll be pleased with what I see.
